TOP 5 OF THE MONTH: JUNE 2014

Monday, 30 June 2014


It's time to round up the month with a list of my top 5 favourites productsHere is what I've been loving through June.

Soap & Glory The Scrub of your life. This is a fantastic body scrub! It smells incredible and leaves the skin feeling so soft and smooth afterwards. It foams slightly and it's really gentle on the skin. Leaves the skin soft and moisturised at the same time. 

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Powder. I really like this compact powder for setting the foundation and concealer and for some touch ups during the day. It's sheer so it doesn't look heavy on the skin. It leaves the complexion luminous but natural. The packaging is so chic and it has the perfect size for your handbag. It comes with its own little brush and a big mirror inside. 

Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Showy.  I'm obsessed with this! The colour of this matte balm is a beautiful blue based bright pink. The formula is smooth and creamy and for a matte lip product,it isn't too drying.

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. This has a pretty good coverage. The consistency is very creamy and it blends really well. It also works well as a natural highlighter. 

Dove Summer Glow Nourishing Lotion. This gradual self-tanner will pleasantly surprise you! It's super easy to apply and it creates a really natural sun kissed look. It smells nice and makes the skin feel moisturised. It is great for fair skin girls and also for self-tanner beginners. 

What are your favourites of the month?

Have a lovely day everyone!

SUMMER RED NAIL POLISH: RIMMEL LONDON SALON PRO IN HIP HOP

Tuesday, 17 June 2014


I really like this nail polish! At the beginning I thought it was nothing special but now I think it's a super gorgeous colour. It's like the perfect red for summer, a bright red coral that it looks great on the nail and the toes.

I do also like the brush, it's quite wide and I find it's just really easy to apply the nail polish. It dries quickly and the finish is very shiny and glossy. What I really don't like is the packaging. I found the lid chubby, bulky and quite annoying to hold. The nail varnish also require two coats to become opaque.

Got I new favourite red!


Have a great day everyone!

I'm addicted to the bath bombs and bubble bars from Lush, I want to try them all! They smell amazing and make your relaxing baths really special and unique.
Here there's a look of some of my favourites:


Think Pink Bath Bomb. This lovely bomb turns the bath water pink and leave lots of tiny pink heart glitters at the bottom of the tub. It makes the tub looks so pretty! This has a fruity-vanilla scent, but nothing really strong.


Phoenix Raising Bath Bomb. I adore this one! It's my favourite for when I feel a bit down and I need a nice relaxing bath to lift my mood. This has cinnamon scent and contains cocoa and shea butter. 


Karma Bubble Bar.  I love the Karma scent from Lush products! It smells refreshing, exotic, citric and patchouli. Theses bubble bars makes loads of bubbles!


Sunnyside Bubble Bar. This golden beauty make the water of your bath turns a beautiful gold shade and make the bath look like liquid gold creating beautiful golden swirls. It's just amazing! The scent of this is soft, citrus, orange/tangerine.

SUMMER BEAUTY TREND: MINT GREEN NAILS

Wednesday, 11 June 2014


Mint nails is a must during summer! This shade looks great on everyone.  This colour called Sugar Apple is super gorgeous! I heard good things about this nail varnish range from Barry M so I thought I would try it.

Sugar Apple gives a beautiful minty colour on the nails. The texture is pretty thick and the formula is very glossy, gel-like finish with a single coat. It dries quickly and I found the staying powder pretty great, it last for 5 days without a chip. I applied 2 coats here and a clear top coat. You can wear them without a top coat and they look very shiny too.

Have a great day everyone!

THE MUST HAVE TRAVEL ACCESSORY: TRAVALO REFILLABLE SPRAY & ROLLERBALL

Monday, 9 June 2014

This refillable perfume bottle is a great option to safely carry your favourite fragrance with you in your bag. You can fill it with any perfume and is also perfect for travelling.

I really like the design, it's is small, compact and the packaging is so sleek and elegant. I love how easy it is to transfer the perfume into the Travalo; just remove the top of your perfume sprayer and align the bottom of the atomizer properly (with the tube into the base of the atomizer) with the scent dispenser straw, then pump to fill the Travalo. It's quick, easy and mess-free. It has a clear slit indicator, so you never over fill it and you can see how much fragrance there's left.

The two models above in the picture are the Travalo Classic Refillable Spray* in Silver 4 ml and the Travalo Refillable Rollerball* in Gold 4.5ml. I'm really enjoying using the rollerball one which I much prefer to the classic Travalo, also in this gold colour, how pretty this looks?. The pen sized rollerball version is perfect for applying exactly where and how much perfume I want to apply, this mechanism works better for me and also prevents waste.

This is an excellent travel or everyday accessory. It is practical, small and effective. And it comes in so many pretty colours! Check the Travalo website for more info.

TOP 5 OF THE MONTH: MAY 2014

Friday, 6 June 2014


It's June already! So today I want to show you the 5 products that I've been using the most during the previous month. Let's get started!

TRESemme Smooth glossing spray. This lightweight spray adds a beautiful glossy shine to the hair and leaves the hair smooth, frizz free and with a gorgeous scent.

Champneys Spa Indulgence Distant Shores Body Butter. This smells so good! It has a fruity scent, a mixture of mango, passion fruit and citrus scents. It is also really moisturising. The skin just absorbs it quickly leaving the skin soft, smooth and with a lovely smell. Highly recommend it!

Chanel Le Blanc Sheer Illuminating Base. This is a very good (and pricey) primer. It has a creamy consistency and you can wear it under the foundation or mix it with your normal foundation. It gives a natural healthy glow and improves the way the foundation stays on the skin. It also helps to minimize the pores and the texture is not greasy at all.

Garnier Miracle Skin Cream. I'm really impressed with this product! This miracle cream promises to fight the appearance of all signs of ageing and improve the skin quality. It also contains SPF20. This tinted cream has a light texture, it's easy to apply and blend onto the skin living a natural look with a lovely healthy glow.  I use this as my base for an everyday makeup look just with a extra concealer for cover some blemishes or marks. I really recommend this to everyone.

Sephora Cream Lip Stain in 03 Stawberry Kissed. This is a matte bright pinky red, highly pigmented and long lasting. It feels really nice on the lips and it's so comfortable to wear. Check my Lip Product Addict Tag here
